“He’s. HERE,” the proud mama gushed on Instagram alongside photos from the birthing process on June 20. “Born blissfully in our living room at 2:52 a.m., June 19.” She also revealed her newborn boy weighed in at 7 pounds, 8 ounces. “No name yet; suggestions welcome,” Bekah added. “Birth story coming soon.”
The 25-year-old revealed she was pregnant in November 2019 and announced they were expecting a boy the following April. The Bachelor Nation babe and her boyfriend of two years, 30, previously welcomed their daughter, Ruth Ray De La Luz, in February 2019. Although she hopes the new siblings will grow up “to be best friends,” Bekah confessed she felt worried about having two little ones so close in age.
“I’m mostly nervous about what the postpartum period is going to be like, or what people call the fourth trimester. That was the hardest time for me,” she explained to fans on Instagram in December. “You’re generally not getting any sleep at all and you kind of feel like you’re losing your mind.”
She’s fully aware there’s a big difference between having one child to look after and two. “I’m going to have to deal with that, but instead of just getting to lay around in bed with the baby like I did with Ruth, this time, I’m going to be taking care of another baby as well,” she acknowledged.
Bekah is very open about her parenting style and has strong feelings about how her kids will be raised. She revealed a powerful lesson she plans on passing down while clapping back at a hater who criticized her leg hair on Instagram.
“My daughter (and every other person for that matter) deserves to live in a world where they can exist in their natural body without feeling disgusting,” the former contestant from Arie Luyendyk’s season wrote in May. “My family will not be a family that passes down shame about weight, body hair, breast size, acne, height or any of the other millions of things we’re taught are ‘unattractive.’ At the same time, I will never tell my children they can’t change their appearance. I can only help them navigate and process why they want to, as I have done for myself.” There’s no denying Bekah is one strong mama.
We can’t wait to watch Bekah’s sweet family of four grow!
